All you need to know about the 2022 Canadian Gaming Summit

The Canadian Gaming Summit, Canada’s premier gaming event, is returning in-person for its 25th year in 2022 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from June 7-9, hosted collaboratively by the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), Canadian Gaming Business (CGB), and MediaEdge Communications (MEC). This year’s Summit is also supported by SBC.

The theme of this year’s 25th annual Summit is “Canada – A World of New Opportunities”, reflecting the hugely significant developments of the Canadian gaming industry, not least Ontario opening its regulated iGaming market, the continuing transformation of the country’s sports betting landscape, and the ever-evolving product and technology innovations that characterize gaming in Canada.

Register today!

The “Summit Marketplace” trade show floor will host an extensive education program based on a wide range of relevant and timely topics including iGaming, sports betting, new technologies, casino/online integration, loyalty/rewards, mobile gaming, lottery, data/analytics, regulatory and legal, finance, and community gaming, hosted by recognizable and expert presenters. The floor will also host roundtable discussions, trade show exhibits, social events and networking receptions, coffee breaks, breakfasts, lunches, and more.

Developed by the industry for the industry, as always, the intention is to provide informative and relevant panels, discussions, and education alongside multiple networking opportunities for industry personnel.

Looking to the future

The past two years have been challenging for gaming in Canada. The remarkable resilience that the industry has demonstrated over the past two years – reconfiguring business operations, managing closures and re-openings, tackling staff challenges, and more – is proof of the strong leadership and dedication of employees and companies across the country.

Heading into 2022, Canada’s gaming industry is a source of much attention and admiration around the world. There is so much for us all to demonstrate, to discuss, and to learn.

It’s truly an exciting time to be part of this great industry, and we sincerely look forward to your attendance and support and to bringing the industry back together again.
